This trail travels through scenic Eagle Creek Canyon, carved by picturesque Eagle Creek in the Columbia River Gorge. Canyon views. Bridge crossings. This beautiful trail heads up Eagle Creek Canyon and is filled with spectacular scenery and waterfalls. You’ll begin running at almost creek level but soon the trail begins climbing high above the creek and promises gorgeous scenery around every bend. There are a few precipitous sections on the trail, so watch your footing. Be forewarned that crowds flock to this trail during the summer months. For more solitude try this trail in the fall, when you can enjoy fantastic end-of-season colors. Rest rooms and water are available at the trailhead.
